Swedish telecoms company Ericsson has said it would be capable of replacing all of the Huawei equipment in the UK’s 5G network if the British government decides to ban the Chinese vendor.
In an interview with Sky News the company’s president for Europe, Arun Bansal, said Ericsson was not lobbying for its Chinese rival to be banned – but would be capable of meeting the demand if it was.
It comes as the UK reassesses its previous decision to allow Huawei equipment a limited role within the country’s 5G networks following new sanctions imposed by the US government.
The National Cyber Security Centre, which considers Huawei a high-risk vendor, is re-evaluating whether it is capable of managing the risks Huawei poses as a result of the new sanctions.
“Ericsson is not described as a high-risk vendor,” Mr Bansal noted to Sky News, referencing NCSC’s official designation for companies such as Huawei.
Mr Bansal said he wanted Ericsson to succeed in the UK based on the back of its own technology and competitiveness.
“We are not betting our financial plan on the UK government making certain decisions which benefit Ericsson,” he added, noting the company is winning in many regions without such decisions being in place.
